" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31

"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4

A little bit of mowing........

.....wasn't ready to mow, didn't feel I NEEDED to mow........but hubby was anxious to do SOMETHING outside with the weather finally behaving like Spring, so having to run to the lawnmower store for a new air filter and sparkplug wrench for my tiller, we happened to spy a used mower for sale.   Now, we bought a NEW mower from them last year, and I would let hubby use it while I used an old garage-sale-bought mower for the rougher areas of the property.  But, alas, the old mower died sometime last summer, and we really do need two mowers to use simultaneously, even though hubby can only mow for a few minutes at a time (hey, every little bit helps !)  Anyway, we bought the used mower today for $40.00, and I gave it a few trips across the higher areas of the yard.  It'll definitely help speed things along.
Violas (perennial)
I want to post a few more flower photos.   The little purple flowers that I've had in my banner are Violas.  I bought them last year as perennials, and they have come back in several different spots in front of the sidewalk.  They're just such happy-faced little flowers. 
Violets (perennial)


These are a little different............wiild Violets, I think is what they are.  I found them in a field near my last home, and brought them with us when we moved over here.   I have them in solid deep purple, and in the light/white with darker markings.   They are trying to spread like wildfire........I work to control where I want them to be, but they are so pretty with all that purple peeping out of the lush green leaves.
Daffodil (perennial)

And these Daffodils were a surprise with their orangy/gold centers.   I am blessed that Rose shared many bulbs with me the first year that I moved in, and someone had already planted the daffodil around the oak tree in front.

2 Rhododendrons bushes  (perennial)

And here's a better shot of the Rhododendrons when they finally got a chance to dry out in yesterday's sunshine.

  1. What glorious flowers! Yes, violets will spread--and unlike grass, they stay a beautiful green and do not need to be mowed.
    $40 lawn mower sounds wonderful.
    I love the way daffodils take off and spread in TN. Here in NM, I've planted them repeatedly, but they have never bloomed again or spread.

  2. We serve a great God, don't we! I love your flowers! And I'm so happy you both get to work in the yard!
